Ridley College AP Biology DogFish Shark Dissection

Today Ms. Kubu and I travelled over to the Second Century Building to join Mr. Bowen’s AP Biology class.  Mr. Bowen received an interesting package yesterday, three DogFish Sharks for his class to dissect this morning.

Here are some interesting facts that I learned in AP Biology today:

1.  Sharks have many compartments of muscles that all work together to allow the shark to move through the water the way it does.

2. The shark has a huge liver that contains a lot of oil which helps the shark to stay buoyant.

3. Sharks have a line of pores under their skin that helps them detect vibrations in the water.
